Acomdata hd500ufape572 not mounting, light comes on but does not seem to power up


The drive may have quietly expired while it was idle. The indicator could mean simply that power is getting to the drive but not going anywhere internally.

Dear Sir I just bought a verbatim 500 GB external


When you press the button it takes a few seconds for the indicator light to come on because the drive is initializing on startup, in other words its starting to spin up which could take a few seconds. Press the button one time and wait 30 seconds to see if its just the delay for the Hard drive to come to speed. And the same for the shutdown it may take a few seconds for it to park the drive and shutdown.
If this helped give a thumbs up.

Maxtor 3200 power indicator lights but computer won't recognize


ooooh, that sucks.

I assume you have tried unplugging it and plugging it back in?
Have you tried to see if it will work on a different computer?

I hop you had it all backed up.
If nobody else's suggestion beat mine...then I give you 2 options.
You have to take it apart (might have to break the shell, since most aren't designed to be user friendly), once you have the actual hard drive out of its housing, open up the side of your computer, and hook it up.
it will have to diferent connection points. One will be power (thats the plug that has (i believe) 4 pins in it...hook that up so your drive has power...the other plug is for data (read/write), its either a sata or ide (depending on how they (maxtor) made it). I assume you dont know what sata or ide is...just google pics it...once you see a picture...you'll know.

anywho, once its hooked up...start you computer back up (FYI, when you do this 'operation', shutdown your pc...and then unplug it)
once you have it all done and loaded back into windows, it should automatically detect it (give it a few minutes).

that scenerio I just laid out for you, is assuming its anything but a hard drive issue.

if it is indeed a hard drive issue....then apart from sending to to some VEEEERY expensive palce that could extract the data for you. theres only one more option. Put the hard drive in the freezer for several hours, then take it back out and hook it up to you computer, if it detects it...move fast, and start transfering all your files off it...cause now its living on borrowed time.

the reason this works **sometimes**, is because of the hard drives heat, its its platter actually expands over time a (very very very tiny bit), enough to mess it up, and when its chillin in your frezzer, the platters contract a little bit...making you able to get your data back...hopefully.

hope all goes well.

Drive wont power up or down


It sounds like the hardware failed. If it no longer mounts or powers up then I would say the hdd crashed and died. Sorry.

Problem 2


The feint ticking noise usually indicates a dead hard drive.
The heads are flicking back and forth at random and make the ticking noise you hear.
The drive can still be detected because the physical hard drive and the controller board on it are in reality 2 seperate components working together. So the controller board is also trying to access the hard drive without luck.

If you have not dropped the unit or knocked it over etc, then chances are the controller board is what has died and therfore you still cannot access the drive. You may get lucky in finding a new controller board to replace a failed one and that will also get your data back.

Harddrive issues.


I would suggest 2 things.
Open the PC up and reseat the RAM stick/s.
Also reseat the graphics card if applicable.
If the monitor still doesnt get sync take out the pci cards and see if it will POST.
If so plug your PCI cards back in one at a time to diagnose which is the faulty one.
Also it could be your graphics card, take it out and use the O/B graphics see if the monitor will get sync off the O/B.
If this doesnt help please supply more information.
